WRC - A mysterious, maybe even mythical creature roams the woods not far from the nation's capital.
Workers at a Maryland hospital first spotted the shy guy, or gal, in June, when they were forced to take their smoke breaks outside.
It soon became a subject of lore and legend, and was dubbed "prince chupa", after the mythical "chupacabra."
Last week, an x-ray tech caught the creature in a cage, and on camera.
But even a closer look couldn't solve the burning question: just what is it?
"It's a kangaroo, dog, rat mixed. It's got a rat tail and a head like a deer. i don't know what it is," said Joe Livermore, an x-ray technician.
Livermore let the animal go, and workers are contacting local veterinarians for help identifying it.
